One of the blogs I subscribe to is Theatre Ideas. The author has some fascinating ideas about building a new theater model based on the ideas of decentralization, localization, sustainability, mutuality, and education.
His current blog reviews a book by Donna Walker-Kuhne called "Invitation to the Party: Building Bridges to the arts, culture and community." He brings out some fascinating ideas, primarily her "ten tools for building audiences."
He's convinced me that this is a book I want to read.
